President’s Message – February 2022

Phil Spencer – President NEC-ACBS

Greetings fellow members,

First off I would like to thank our past President Scott Robinson and his most helpful wife Linda for their great efforts for the past five years. We had great shows and excellent events with them at the helm!

This will be my second time serving as President of the Chapter as I did this back in 1997-1998. I am planning to be the President for three years and carrying the torch through the Chapter’s 50th Anniversary.

We had our one show last Summer without judging. This to me made it a more relaxing and fun show without the stress of having people leave the show unhappy if their boat did not win a “First Place”,
Frankly, I have been judging for many years and have judged some of the same boats maybe up to 10 times year after year. I also believe that “People’s Choice” and “Participant’s Choice”, that we did hand out are very worthy awards.

My self along with other Committee members have been having meetings in order to put together a Survey/Questionnaire that we will e-mail blast out to the entire NEC- ACBS membership. We want to get your feedback on items such as judging, spring romp, fall foliage cruise and more. Please watch for this in the next couple of weeks and please also respond. This is your Chapter and we’re eager to hear some feedback from you all about it!

Please also check back here on our website to get all your updated Chapter information.

Sincerely, Phil Spencer

President NEC-ACBS
